Matrix by Hunter Seamons using Final Cut Pro (FLAC>AIFF>Final Cut>WAV>FLAC)
September 21, 2008
1) Occasional static/clicks/pops in the sources.
2) Cuts in the SBD between some songs. Some dropouts in C.C. Rider, and briefs cuts in LL Rain, Drums, and Other One. Other One also has some brief, shifty channel business.
3) The show appears to be seamless.

Subject: The Maryland Summer humidity: you could hold it in your hand like jello
Subject: great audio! great show!
This matrix has the best of both worlds.
Subject: The X Factor!
Trouble Ahead - Jerry In Red! Thanks for the hard work, Hunter!!!
Subject: The best sound quality of all other sources!
This was my first show, so very happy to find this high of a quality!
Subject: The Band having fun...alot of fun.
So we had to go to Merriweather. Back then you did not always need tickets before hand, although that was soon to change, as these shows did sell out.
My buddy waiting in line at the box office and moments before the band started they released some front row seats. We scored four and raced down during 1/2 Step.
The smile on our faces.
What I will always remember about this night was the pure delight on the entire band faces, especially during Gimme Some Lovin'.
The He's Gone is often not mention but it is a sublime version and Jerry's voice is not too bad on it.
The space> Other One is a intense ride as Phil blowns numerous woofers on his stage rack during it. Jerry gets off the hook at the 7:00 minute mark as well.
As @cheezstak fondly recalls during the US Blues they dropped the banner and Steve Parish, I believe, came out waving the Stars and Stripes too.
This being the peak of the Reagan years and all us Dead Heads being on the front line of the Just Say NO and the war on drugs campaigns we were more than willing and elated to celebrate our pursuit of happiness and stick it to ole Ronnie right in his own back yard too.
Subject: MPP - Best Show of the mid 80's
Bar none; the best Shakedown I ever heard or saw - and I have seen lots.
Keep on Growing was totally cool too. Does anyone remember the 25th anniversary banner that they threw down during US Blus? Definately an amazing event and awsome show -- only wish I could relive this one again!
Subject: sounds like whats to come
the bass response is so clean and deep
85 merriweather was a legendary series of playing too.
Subject: Great Shakedown!
Subject: my tapes
Subject: nice matrix
Subject: Brown Eyed Women.
Subject: sounds great!
Subject: Solid for 85
yeah yeah the shakedown ad nuaseam... my pick of the second set is the space > other one.
Thanks again Hunter for your contributions to the growing pantheon of live grateful dead.
Star rating is for audio quality, please see other sources for show reviews there are plenty trust me.
Subject: Great Show
